    Unless [as some will happily accept] a full blown apartheid regime is the future of Zionism. Ehud Barak has said much the same thing. A 'viable' 2 state or an apartheid regime. If the 'viable' state does not come about it will no longer be just an academic discussion. Israel will without question become the new apartheid regime. At the moment 'one state' seems idealistic, but in the future it could become the only viable option. "Professor Sergio DellaPergola, a demographer from the Hebrew University's Institute of Contemporary Jewry , given to low-key predictions, estimates that by 2050 Israel's Arab sector may grow to nearly 30 percent of the population, "and although the Jewish majority remains stable with such a ratio, such numbers are more typical of a binational state, with all that the term implies." http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/pages/ShArt.jhtml?itemNo=432222&contrassID=2&subContrassID=3&sbSubContrassID=0&listSrc=Y The growth rate of the Arab population in Jerusalem is almost double the growth rate of the Jewish population and could reach parity around 2035. The population in the OT's alone projected to go to 11.8 million. This set against a projected 7 million Jews in Israel effectively ruling over 14 million Arabs. Not only will there be far more Palestinians and Arabs under Israeli military rule than Jews but the Arab populations of her neighbours are growing rapidly. From 350 millions to 700 million by 2050.Jordan and Syrias pop' much more than doubling. All within one generation. See UN Population Fund study titled "The State of World Population 2001" Over the next couple of decades the US is going to be ever more under geopolitical pressure to recalculate its priorities abroad in the face of worldwide trends in Asia which undermine its hegemony, whilst its economy slow bleeds toward mediocrity even as its military consumes ever larger shares of the national cake. This is the paradigm shift that can together with demographics create the perfect storm for Israel.
